How can educators refine their copyright for sharing knowledge?

Learning pathway: Creative Commons unplugged

During Session 4 we introduce the free legal tools provided by Creative Commons which educators can use to refine their copyright. The Session starts with a video signpost from Cathy Casserly of Creative Commons. We will explain how Creative Commons works and introduce the six licenses. Finally you will learn about the compatibility among the different licenses. We invite participants to share their thoughts and experiences WEnotes, twitter or Google+ using the #OCL4Ed tag.
